People should get safe and appropriate care that meets their needs and supports their rights (outcome 4)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Experience effective, safe and appropriate care, treatment and support that meets their needs and protects their rights.

How this check was done

We looked at the personal care or treatment records of people who use the service, carried out a visit on 19 February 2013, checked how people were cared for at each stage of their treatment and care and talked with people who use the service. We talked with staff and reviewed information we asked the provider to send to us.

Our judgement

People experienced treatment and support that met their needs.

Reasons for our judgement

Care and treatment was planned and delivered in a way that ensured people’s safety and welfare. We looked at the records for 12 people who used the service. We found that they had been assessed for their suitability for treatment. The doctor had assessed their medical and mental health history, taken their blood pressure and weight. The records showed that where people had breaks in treatment they had been reassessed. We spoke with two people who used the service; they told us that they had discussed diet and exercise with the doctor, before being prescribed medication. We found that these conversations had been reflected in their records.
